Plenty of time till xmass peeps......shopping time is after Xmass sale!!!!
Fox2232, you haven't tried G-Sync, theory vs. practice is different. I run 110Hz and I know how mismatching FPS and Hz feels. G-Sync / FreeSync is necessary going forward.
Strawman argument. Phaze, southamptonfc, Coma666, and me all have 120Hz+ displays (I'm 110Hz). We can tell the difference between 60Hz and 120Hz, so we're not part of those people that might not even exist in the first place.
Mathematical assumptions are useless. You're calculating frame variance and how much difference there is, with no reference point as to how far one can get affected by such variance. Point is FPS =/= Hz is not supposed to happen in the first place, hence G-Sync makes Hz = FPS and you eliminate that mismatch, giving you the feeling of VSynced FPS = Hz at all FPS.
the true problem is in europe no g-syc kit and noone say when it will be released, and I need a new monitor!
I don't think he understands. G-Sync at 144Hz is far better than a plain jane 144Hz monitor. I'm halfway tempted to buy a spare DIY kit just to keep on hand.
phaze u are in america?
omg so... buy it!

The thing is to realistically look at where we are. You for sure immediatelly knows difference. But question is What is difference of 60Hz to 110Hz to you (I guess day and night). Then what is difference from 110Hz to 144Hz I would say it would not be as much needed. For me from 120 to 144Hz was very small step, not justifying purchase of new monitor.
Especially since vg248qe 144Hz is not very good in image clarity compared to 120Hz LightBoost on same screen. (guys here may not like it, but some prefer to see clear image after clear image, not blur after blur)
And then what kind of improvement gives GSync vs 110/120/144Hz and if it is worth buying new monitor over your current one?
you guys that actually have gsync monitors apparantly dont know what you are talking about
I was planning on buying a gsync monitor, but now my money goes to Oculus Rift consumer version.
pretty sure non existent in the states
Ok but it's a shame we in europe we don't get kits and we have no answer about it!
I mean need a monitor, what i need to do now?
List of upcoming G-Sync monitors
I wonder about ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q. If it uses DP1.2 MST mode and why they write 120Hz+. With HBR2 they may be able to fit in up to 180Hz in 24bpp mode. Or is it 144Hz only if one sets 1080p?
For that price tag it should better be good.
not that you'd even consider one mind you.
Actually you are pretty wrong. I sit at quite good XL2420T @120Hz LB with my made color mod for gaming modes (no more yellow tinting).
G/FreeSync at 1080p would not be enough for me to "upgrade" by trading precise timing for clear image.
But 2560x1440 let say capable to really pull 144Hz without becoming blurry would be in my consideration as this resolution brings more details.
I get that some simply hate idea that someone is belittling GSync while they feel like 6 years old getting new super toy. (I am waiting for toys of my own.)
But at least some of guys here did not call me fanboy, since they noticed that I actually use/propagate LB which is nV technology and good one (though not on purpose as it become good by being misused).
Unless there's more to come, I guess I'll be jumping on the ROG.
That ROG monitor is using a TN panel. And it's like $700
Aren't all those using TN panels? Do they even have any 1440p G-Sync IPS/PVA/Etc panels?
From ASUS's FAQ:
Why is the display TN rather than IPS/PVA/MVA, etc?
Not all TN’s are made the same: the premium panel used in the PG278Q is of very high quality. IPS panels (and their derivatives like PVA/MVA etc) are not suitable for a multitude of reasons: 1) the response rate is simply not fast enough to react to the active change in refresh rate and 2) Current panels available cannot reliably achieve >60Hz without significantly affecting the quality of the image. IGZO technology (and LTPS – low temperature polysilicon – likewise) – yields 100***8242;s of times faster electron mobility versus standard amorphous silicon panels – and thus can provide a response rate comparable to TN (up to 60Hz currently), but, however desirable this technology is, it is still currently cost prohibitively for many PC gaming enthusiasts at this moment, which is why ROG has used a better priceerformance, high quality TN panel.
Sounds like they did their research. Their 4K IGZO monitor @ 60Hz is like $3000.
ok but WHEN? thats the problem.
One vendor here in italy say it will be before the end of April, i hope so.
